  • How do I extend my Mortgage offer?


    Can anyone help? I am in the process of buying my first house, all was going well until our sellers pulled out of the property they were buying, they have since found another property and everyone in the chain is ready to exchange except them. They are doing everythign they can so we can get to exchange by May 28th (in order to be able to complete before June 9th when our mortage expires) but it is such a short amount of time we have been advised to apply for an extension on our mortgage offer. We were told to contact our solictor and get her to write a letter outlining why we need an extension, but she says she has nothing to do with it and we should contact the bank directly. Has anyone else been through this?

    Thanks so much for your help in advance

    Definately contact your mortgage lender, ideally face to face if possible otherwise by phone and explain the circumstances. See what they say but bear in mind that the banks took (in their eyes) a hammering recently and don't seem to be overly client sensitive at the minute just concerned about clawing back some of the money they lost. Still can't hurt to try.

      Don't know if this is the right thread, but can one get a mortgage on a house that is owned outright?
